The Nuts and Bolts of a Baltimore Classroom!

My students need binders and boards! Please help my kids get started the school year with the basics every student should have - including breakfast in the mornings.

My Students

Imagine going to school on an empty stomach, unable to afford purchasing even the writing utensils, notebooks and binders that are necessary in the classroom. Please keep this a figment of my students' imaginations and help fund a welcoming, efficient classroom for them.

My students are on a mission to prove to their families and communities that they CAN graduate high school.

These are kids who have returned to high school after dropping out or having been kicked out for a variety of reasons. Your help will fuel the fire they have re-sparked themselves. I will have three classrooms this school year - two high school history classes and one 8th grade history class.

My Project

I am determined to provide a clear, organized way for my students' to compile their work day-by-day. These binders will be personalized for each student and will be divided in sections such as, "Unit (name)," "Homework," "Tests/quizzes," "Extra-work". Snacks will be given when students were forced to skip meals that day - hunger should not be an issue a student deals with when trying to learn. I plan to use the dry-erase markers on personal whiteboards I hope to get for each of my students during interactive lectures and activities.

As a new teacher, I have a vision that my students will be given what they deserve and will achieve beyond what they may initially expect.

By providing them with basics such as binders, we all become one day closer to this goal.
